1. – Cybill Shepherd, Taxi Driver, 1976. The veteran San Francisco actress – 70 roles in 30 years, including Katharine Heigl’s mother in Knocked Up, 2007 – was interviewed  for the role of Betsy. Martin Scorsese  picked Cybill, said producer Julia Phillips, “for her big ass, a retro Italian  gesture…  shot her ass at it widest point, not flattering from a Vogue point of view.”  Phillips begged him to cut  it.  But no… “I’m Italian and I love it.”
